My top 3 in that order

3.66 (3.8 Degree) 159 LSAT (Texas Resident) and Non-URM

I applied FT and PT at SMU, FT at UH, and FT at Tulane.

I'd appreciate your input

UT a thousand times over.

Austin > Waco

UT Law offers boatloads more opportunities as far as practicing outside of the state, and should you decide to stay in Texas, UT is top of the pops.

Trust me if you got in you should go! congrats man

Personal Statement / Re: LOW Lsat Addendum
« on: January 20, 2009, 04:33:38 PM »
Writing an addendum really only works when you're trying to explain the difference between two scores, or if you REALLY have a crazy excuse for why you scored low (I think I read some post on here or TLS about someone taking the test in Korea and them closing an airport due to political unrest or something.  That's legit).  If you were to take the test again and do significantly better, then you might have a reason to write an addendum, but doing bad on your ACT isn't a good reason.

I'm not sure I agree with this assessment about LSAT addendums, from all the books that i've read it seems like the two most legitimate excuses for considering a lower LSAT score are "family emergency" or "history of poor standardized test taking".  Obviously both would probably need to be validated, but I am sure there are some schools who will take these factors into account.  with that said, with a 148 I would suggest retaking and a prep-course (if you have the time and the means).  Self-Study i also crucial to success on the LSAT.

best of luck to you

Robert Morse wrote about it in his blog...judging by the way he explained and defined what constitutes a PT program, it seems like he is leaning towards separating them instead of combining.

yeah I was complete at the end of October, my file status says "In Review"

but at any rate I emailed them and the lady said expect to hear towards the end of February...I guess they just take a whole bunch of files at once and then review them but change all their statuses or something.

Best of luck to everyone!

Yeah I want to, but how do you go about asking them without looking like a jerk?
